    SB encryption on secondary drive is very slow

      My employer recently started using Dell M6500 models with two hard drives installed (2 - 160 GB SATA drives . The first hard drive encrypts in about 2.5 hours. However, the second drives takes around 60 hours to encrypt and no-one seems to have an answer for this. We have tested multiple machines with different size drives with the same result. Something seems to be slowing down the encryption process on the second drive. We even disabled the Esata setting in BIOS but this had no effect. Any help would be great. Thanks.
